Last Sunday I went to the Chicago Botanic Garden for a lecture. The Wisconsin Illinois Lily Soceity is sponsoring a lecture every month from January to April. The January lecture's title is "How To Grow Lilies From Seeds" demonstrated by Jim Ault, fellow WILS member and the Director of Ornamental Plant Research at CBG. February's lecture is "Old Masters and New Gardens-The Enduring Principles of Design" presented by Ms. Donna Diamond, Senior Staffer at Lurvey's Garden Center in Des Plaines. The lecture in March is "Put Glam in Your Garden With Lilies" presented by Mr. Woody Imberman, WILS President. And Lastly, "What Is An English Garden?" in April presented by Ms. Carolyn Ulrich, Editor In Chief of Chicagoland Gardening Magazine. The lectures are held at the Regenstein Center in Fairchild Room.
There is also a Bulb Sale on March 14 at 1:00 PM before the lecture starts. According to Mr. Imberman, we have some Asiatics and Martagon Hansonii at inexpensive prices.
